O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
Twilight is stealing over the sea,*
Shadows are falling dark on the lea;
Borne on the night winds, voices of yore
Come from the far-off shore.

Voices of loved ones, songs of the past,
Still linger 'round me while life shall last;
Lonely I wander, sadly I roam,
Seeking that far-off home.

Come in the twilight, come, come to me!
Bringing some message over the sea,
Cheering my pathway while here I roam,
Seeking that far-off home.

Chorus:
Far away beyond the starlit skies,
Where the love-light never, never dies,
Gleameth a mansion, filled with delight,
Sweet, happy home so bright!

* - Original wording was "Twilight is falling over the sea,"
